This Brookville, New York Home Channels Parisian Chic

2023 Best of Year Winner for Large Residential Transformation

Having created an ultra-modern beach house for this same client, Miami-based firm Britto Charette was tasked with giving their traditional 7,500-square-foot main residence in Brookville, New York, a contemporary makeover that still respected the home’s original architectural language. The transformation included turning the basement home theater into a state-of-the-art showstopper, reinventing the ground-floor library as a coolly stylish yet intimate gathering space, and creating a stunning living room outfitted with iconic lighting fixtures, unique artworks, and collectible objets. Furniture includes a roster of cutting-edge classics such as Pierre Paulin’s sinuous Groovy lounge chairs, Mathieu Lehanneur’s sculptural Familyscape sofas, and Pierre Augustin Rose’s chunky Helios mirror. With a subtle color palette of whites and creams accented with touches of black and gray, the overall look is that of a chic Parisian home, sophisticated but welcoming.
